11:30 – 12:45 Lunch
A calm, happy, talkative and social experience. We aim to develop social skills, turn taking, politeness, helping and serving each other. Within the nursery children are responsible for helping to clear away their plates and are encouraged to develop individual hygiene skills. We provide variety and a choice of organic food (as much as possible). We establish healthy eating habits which include eating plenty of fruit and vegetables and cooking with no added salt or sugar. We aim to educate children’s palates to enjoy natural, healthy flavours and food.

12:50 – 13:30/14:30 Rest 
All children are made to rest in the afternoon. Some children require an afternoon nap. Mattresses are provided for them. Children can resume quiet activities after a 45 min rest if they do not sleep.
